Pinaalalahanan ng Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines o CBCP ang mga botante na gamiting gabay ang 10-commandments o sampung utos ng Diyos sa paghalal ng mga bagong lider sa ika-9 ng Mayo 2016.

Ito ang nilalaman ng liham pastoral ni CBCP President at Lingayen Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas.

Iginiit ni Archbishop Villegas na nararapat iboto ng mga botante ang mga kandidatong may magandang pananaw para sa bayan at magta-trabaho ng tama at tugma sa hinihigi ng kanilang mga posiyun na hinahawakan.

Inihayag ng Arsobispo na kailangan ding tandaan ng mga botante na ang kanilang iboboto ay mayroong takot,may pagmamahal sa Diyos, may katapatan sa bayan at hindi lamang puro talino.

Umaasa si Archbishop Villegas na matuto na ang mga Filipino sa kamaliang nagawa noong mga nakaraang taon at sa mga nagdaang halalan na naging laganap ang katiwalian at pagnanakaw sa bayan ng mga halal na opisyal.

Hinimok ng Arsobispo ang mga botante na gawing gabay ang Sampung Utos ng Diyos at pagnilayan ito sa pagpili ng iboboto ngayong 2016.

“In the light of the Ten Commandments, let us discern how to vote. 1. I am the Lord your God. You shall not have strange gods before me.Do not vote for an atheist or for someone who makes fun of the name of God. A Catholic cannot support a candidate who vows to wipe out religion from public life.” A Catholic is not closed to the candidacy of a non-Catholic. In fact, there are worthy candidates from other Christian communities and other religions. Their qualifications and aspirations must be given serious heed by our Catholic voters, their truly helpful plans and visions must be supported”. bahagi ng Pastoral Statement ng CBCP President

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. Words are sacred. From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Do not vote for candidates who have a history of violating oaths they have made. Our Catechism states clearly “A person commits perjury when he makes a promise under oath with no intention of keeping it, or when after promising on oath he does not keep it. Perjury is a grave lack of respect for the Lord of all speech. Pledging oneself by oath to commit an evil deed is contrary to the holiness of the divine name.

Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day. In spite of economic constraints, public authorities should ensure citizens a time intended for rest and divine worship.” If the candidate professes the Catholic faith, how does this candidate look at Sunday worship, Sunday rest especially for the poor, Sunday time with the family? Does the candidate show, through his life, belief in the grace of God at work among his people or has he fallen to the pursuit of some sort of “ideology of performance” introducing a harsh, impersonal and self -centered utilitarian attitude even for his subordinates? Has this candidate contributed to the culture of heightened anxiety, hyper-activism, and success-orientation without God in public policies? ayon pa sa Arsobispo

“Honor your father and your mother. How does the candidate show filial piety to elders? How does the candidate safeguard family life, the protection of children and the elderly and frail family members?” Related to this commandment is the reality of political dynasties in the Philippines. I reiterate what I have advised our Catholic faithful in the past: Do not vote for family members running for the same positions as family members before them to perpetrate the family’s hold on public office. Christian voters should prudently choose others who may have equal if not superior abilities and competencies for the position. There is no monopoly on ability for government, and truly no one in government is indispensable, ayon kay Archbishop Villegas.

“You shall not kill. A Catholic voter commits a grave sin in voting for candidates who oppose the Lord’s teachings on the sacredness of human life from conception to natural death. Please demand that the candidates state in clear terms their position on issues such as abortion, the return of the death penalty, euthanasia and extra judicial killings.”

You shall not commit adultery. We must liberate our nation from two tyrannies about sexual morality—the tyranny of puritanical attitudes with misguided taboos and the tyranny of indecency. The Church’s position on marriage and human sexuality is positive and uplifting. Breaking through both tyrannies, the Christian view of sexuality and marriage presents the dignity and authentic freedom of single and married life that is truly fulfilling, desirable, and fruitful.”

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Lying is the intentional misrepresentation of the truth by word, gesture, or even silence. To deliberately intend to mislead other persons who have the right to know the truth can do real violence to them. For it denies them the knowledge they need to make their judgments and decisions.”

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. Does the candidate treat women with respect? In providing sex education for children, does the candidate promote healthy interpersonal relationships and proper bodily expressions? Does the candidate promote an adulterous lifestyle by his life example? Does the candidate support or promote the ideology of a homosexual lifestyle without respect for modesty and right conduct?”

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods. What has he done for the poor? Has his programs for the poor led to the liberation of the poor from the shackles of poverty or has this candidate promoted a culture of patronage so that the poor may be perennially dependent and hence easier to manipulate?

Dagdag pahayag ng Arsobispo, maging maingat sa pagboto at huwag magpadala sa pressure na pagiging sikat ng kandidato sa halip ay gawing batayan ang sampung utos ng diyos upang maging tama ang pagpili sa kandidato.

Samantala, umabot sa 54.6 ang registered voters habang 1.4 na milyung ang OFW na boboto sa nalalapit na eleksiyon mula sa datus ng Commission on Elections o COMELEC.
